haha! funny you should say that... as I saw that pic and went "Im making a beret... and making that damn patch on it too!"

If you wanna have a PSD file of the patch, I can send btw... I made it roughly in Photoshop lol.

If only I had a job, Id be well on my way to trying to complete my objective of making every Snake outfit there is haha!

Would be cool to see pics of it soon, note me or something when you sling em on here.

I've never cosplayed anything from metal gear but I'm open to the idea, since I'm a really big fan of the series (despite not having played 4 yet.. ugh)

I figure it might be cool to try a gray fox, or raiden at some point.


DO IT! DO IT NOW!!!

That would be very cool, if a little hard (understatement)... Grey Fox and Raiden bewilder me as being near impossible costumes that I wouldnt DARE attempt out of fear that I may create a gaping hole in my wallet!

If you come up with a method, I will praise you like a God.

Alias.com has done a couple of MGS cosplays. I think ones being remade and the other is retired atm.

I'm most of the way there to completing Raiden from MGS4, Thankfully the hardest part, the helmet is complete. I've posted some pictures on my profile.

Awesome, hope theres as many MGS peeps as last October! All great costumes too


02 Jun 2009 - 21:0715329
I was considering the Sons of Liberty version of Raiden (non-nude of course )
but yeah, I think I have a method in mind that could work out well. I'll see if I can find the materials I need at low expense. Maybe I should pop down to the junk yard or something.


03 Jun 2009 - 12:4315350
Im in an position here guys wonder if you could help me out, im not sure who to cosplay I have planned a Naked snake but I kinda wanna do Vamp as well.

any ideas would be greatly apreciated?

Hmmm... well Ive had a look through your pics and stuff and I have a few ideas.

1. Fatman, because you have a roundish face but still have strong features ie nose and eyes. Also because Ive never seen anyone do him... ever. Although your not actually fat, so you'd have to work your way around that haha.
2. Major Zero, another rare cosplay... and also not that difficult.

In regards to the harder cosplays, doing The Fury, The Pain or Naked Snake or possibly even Volgin would be cool!

Hope that helps somewhat

That'd be cool to see, I guess that Lycra and cheap kids craft foam (my saviour!!!) is a good way to do it. Efabrics seems to be one of the few sites Ive seen that actually do sell Lycra and stuff... so yeah, check them out

That's a good idea thx. I was considering buying a wet suit as the base, there are some on ebay that have the colour needed (dark grey). I was then thinking of finding light grey and near black rubber in the trash, and sculpting them using a knife into the various segments. But I'm not sure how likely that is, I've never been scavenging before. I figure even parts of a regular junk yard black tire would come in useful, if I can take a pair of shears to it. But yeah craft foam may come in handy too for the intricates.

strong features, not actually fat ^^ i guess thats a compliment LOL yeah fatman might be a little past my talents plus he is a bit of a twonk lol Im probs gonna do naked snake for my first ^.^ easiest to pop together although easy to rush as well so i better be on my guard.

that said about the round face thing I was considering older big boss from mgs4 parhap ^^

Well, if your going for accuracy Naked Snake is suprisingly hard... took me 2 years to put it all together. Cost me alot too... about £300 lol

MGS4 big boss would be VERY cool, as yet again I have not seen that cosplayed... so maybe do some little test shots of your face or something and we can all have our vote!

and yes... those were compliments haha!

Yeah your snake is very impressive ^.^ werent you agreeing that it was difficult to get your cash together? If I get a stable job I will more than likely give it a rumble. If I had the mega cash I would give the portable ops one a go but that is very mega.

also considering The Sorrow as he is probably my favourite character from MGS3, although cosplaying Volgin means I can crotch grab with no reprecussions.

thanks for the help man ^.^ im glad we have solid fanbase for Kojima on here.

good luck with any MGS cosplay you pick lol (you still seem alittle out on who to do)

i can agree with the costs of MGS cosplay (most of it is getting the army stuff cos you can really make some parts of it) i was just lucky working where i do to get hold of some of my stuff for free,

it might be a race for old big boss lol as i get paid in two weeks and its going on getting stuff ready for ayacon lol, but i think we need a MGS3 group for Oct Expo, what do you guys think?


04 Jun 2009 - 12:0815388
Annadill Dont worry Old Big Boss dosent really suit me I had a good think last night, im pretty confident its going to be Naked snake post eye removal your right Army Surplus Is for the best, im making his arm things out of pleather or viynl however and attemting to find transfares but im sure I can get it together, the wig is the hardest thing as my hair is black and down my back lol but Naked Snake is a good place to start I think.

I used the "scruffy" wig (I think that's what it was called) from cosworx it's not the best wig out there but most of it was covered up by the bandna so it was ok, I also had to dye my beard to match the wig lol,
I found a old person effects make up set by ben nye which has all the colours and brushes ect In it so I'm getting that next week to test out, so I'll post some pictures and hopefully freak out the missus lpl


04 Jun 2009 - 19:1315408
well one MGS cosplay I'm for sure doing next year is the MGS4 version of Vamp, been wanting to do it for a while, just not got round to it yet, be now I'll make sure I get it done next year finally ^^.

Oh dude thank god for that im so happy to know you used a wig. Ive been stressing so much about the wig being the hardest part, yours looked amazing so im sure I can do at least half as well. Also trying to find a compression shirt for snakes underneath as its alot easier than making the pleather arm things and I will be able to do the eyelet things on there

Plus I totaly thought I was gonna be the only snake having to die my blonde beard LOL

LOL it seems we all have had the same problems then.

As for the compression suit I found a chaep UnderArmoure top at JBB sports all I had to do is colour the White logo in on the neck,

I found this amazing web site for anyone cosplaying Big boss/naked snake really informative and I have found it invaluable.

Good luck

Change of plans for October!

Ive decided to do two cosplays over the weekend, not sure what way round. But probably will be:

Iroqouis Pliksin & Vamp = Saturday
Old Snake (suit) & Sunny = Sunday

So if anyone does Big Boss (MGS4 version of course)
it would be most awesome!


16 Jun 2009 - 18:1815872
all my fabric turned up today so i can start on my old big boss out fit

but thery forgot to send out my damed pattern so ill have to wait or find a free one some where to start with,


23 Jun 2009 - 22:4116056
Right...

been updating my Pliskin costume and it's suprisingly difficult. Need to get myself some dye and perhaps another Kidney pouch and make them darker green, completed the boot covers and today I slaved for six hours to make a damn M4 adjustable stock using card and foam and wood filler of all things lol. But it's turned out better than I thought, so all Is good. Reason for that btw, is because you can't buy stocks seperately for M83 Double Eagle bbguns... rather annoying. Also completed the headset using putty, a broken off Headset mic, Peltor army headphones and alot of paints. Also attached the random bullets Snake has on his webbing belt. So all should be finished by mid way through summer... at least I hope so.

How's everyone else's costumes going? Especially you Annadil... I wanna see some more progress shots of Big Boss!



23 Jun 2009 - 23:0316058
sound like youve done a hella lot of work there sam, any photos yet?

as for my stuff ive worked on the basics of the coat and got it mostly finshed, but ive just been re watching the ending and i Really need to sort out the shoulder pads (i was goingfrom memoury over the week to test them out) and i need to add pockets with ive never noticed before lol other then that i have all the other things but the hair dye to whiten my hair (if i show it off early i might hunt down my green berret (sp?) and go as a post outer heaven younger big boss mash-up MG1 type).
